Once bound for Arizona, K.J. Simpson will be joining a Pac-12 rival instead. The four-star combo guard announced Wednesday that he has committed to the Colorado Buffaloes.

Simpson reopened his recruitment and received a full release from Arizona after it fired Sean Miller.

A 6-foot-2 guard from West Hills, California, Simpson is the No. 99 player in the 2021 recruiting class, per 247Sports composite rankings. He was Arizona’s first commitment in that class last August, and signed in November along with fellow 4-star guards Shane Nowell and Shane Dezonie.

As of now, only Nowell is still on track to join the Wildcats under new head coach Tommy Lloyd. Dezonie decommitted on Tuesday. Arizona currently has nine scholarship players on its roster for the 2021-22 season, four under the 13 maximum.
